We’re connected! The communities of Boulder Junction and Manitowish Waters are pleased to announce the official dedication of the connection between Boulder Junction and Manitowish Waters and the expansion of the “The Heart of Vilas County Bike Trail System.” This trail system is a combined 45 miles of paved trail running through Manitowish Waters, Boulder Junction, Sayner and St. Germain. The paved trail is suitable for bicycles of all types, including road bikes, and are perfect for a family ride or hike. Riders of this connecting portion of trail will experience one of the most scenic and enjoyable trails in northern Wisconsin which travels through a beautiful highland tamarack forest, rolling hills, 560’ of wetland over 10’ wide boardwalks, a 144 foot long and 10 foot wide arched bridge over Rice Creek, proceeding along the Manitowish River to the Manitowish River bridge.

In celebration of the expansion of “The Heart of Vilas County Bike Trail System” will be a Trail Dedication on Saturday, on July 26, 2014 at the Wayside at the intersection of Hwy H and Hwy K, along the bike trail, just 2.5 miles west of Boulder Junction and 10 miles east of Manitowish Waters.
